Malia Tschantz has taught visual art in Akron Public Schools for 13 years with 11 of those years at Miller South School for the Visual and Performing Arts. Her favorite part of Miller South is the love and joy the students bring to all of the arts as well as the support staff receives from parents and the community. Malia is a co-creator of the 7th/8th grade Visual Art curriculum that established an 8 semester course to provide students the opportunity to explore multiple art disciplines within the visual art spectrum. Her students have participated in the Scholastic Art Competition with students receiving high honors, even winning a silver key at the national level for their skill and technique. Malia has also coached girls cross country for 14 years and track and field for four years at Firestone CLC, and in 2007 led the girls to the first City Series Track & Field championship for Firestone CLC.
